Comprehensive overview of human rights and education

09.12.2011
German Education Server and “Education Worldwide“ present an up-to-date dossier

An up-to-date dossier of the German Education Server and its partner ”Education Worldwide” delivers manifold information on the human right to education as well as human rights issues in education: On December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was published.

Subject to a co-operation between the German Education Server and “Education Worldwide”, this dossier is offered in German and English. The German Education Server is the central gateway to education information on the Internet. This joint service of the federal government and the Länder states is coordinated at the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF).

“Education worldwide”, a gateway to educational information from abroad, is also managed by the DIPF; this service is part of the association of portals hosted by the German Education Server.

The dossier focuses on the human right to basic education, particularly in times of crisis, and renders international sources such as the brochure “UNESCO and education. Everyone has the right to education“ accessible.

Moreover, the dossier links to manifold information offerings in the field of integrating human rights into education and learning. For instance, this includes a teacher compendium by “Human Rights Education Associates“, a non-governmental organization that acts as a network in human rights education.

The DIPF is a member of the Leibniz Association, which currently counts 87 research institutes and science infrastructure institutions, as well as two associated members. Research in the Leibniz Association covers a broad scope, reaching from the natural sciences, engineering and environmental sciences to economics-, social and space science and the humanities. Leibniz institutes strategically and thematically work on issues that are relevant to society as a whole. Hence, Leibniz institutes are jointly funded by the federal government and the Länder states.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
